    After seeing it actually go off I am now more convinced it's actually a Bond villain super-weapon.

    Knowing how much your original camera was, how did you get more? Are they lenders? Companies that recognize you as worth a free one? Or maybe you are just that loaded?

    Okay I'm a terrible person but now I'm wondering what it would do to a human

      I'm no expert, but just the shockwave alone would definitely obliterate your internals. I am also guessing it would be probably pretty messy.

    Leave it to Apple to make a large screen that barely cracks after that impact, but every phone shatters at the slightest touch.

    Assuming that the video is in 25 Frames and that the black markers on the wall are approx 1 ft apart, that shock wave was traveling approx. 3099.17 MPH which is about 4 times faster than mach 1. So much power. But sometimes my math is worse than Jeremy.

      I imagine it would slow down exponentially though if it DID travel a mile.

    This is AMAZING! I love seeing the blinding, unexpected blue flame, the sound hitting the barriers, the way you can see the light travel across the floor (@ 2:50 watch the concrete floor, you can actually see the light travel across it!) I'm completely amazed by this entire video.

      That's not light traveling that you're seeing. That's the initial shockwave. Watch again from 2:27. You'll see it there.

      isbelldl: I see now that the light is part of the shock wave. Thank you for pointing that out to me. I'm still awestruck to watch it travel across the floor.

    Yep, that's eviscerated all right.


    Looks like the speakers may have survived, though.

    Great work with those sound effects Gavin, I really like how it enhanced the blast wave hitting the walls. The blue flame was amazing, looked like something out of an anime.

    When they do the Football vs Face video again in 6 years time, they should launch the ball out of that tube.

      It just so happens that they do. Its a long story and I dont want to bore anyone with the details but aside from a few shady glances its no problem at all.

    things like this make me so happy. I'd love to see what this could do to a ballistics dummy.

    I think my favorite part was the shock wave. . . or what is the sound wave? . . . are those the same thing? no they're not.....

      shockwave travels at the speed of sound in a medium (being air in this case), so it is a shockwave, but it is travelling at the speed of sound, not is sound :)

      And in simpler terms, a shockwave is a massive compression of a medium (normally air). That's why, with a big enough explosion, you can get blasted in a direction. The compressed air is like a wall.

    So we have an Apple computer, Gateway speakers, and a Dell keyboard.  I didn't catch the brand on the mouse, but I'll assume it's keeping with the theme and say it's from HP.

    As impressive as the slo-mo footage is, the thing that always gets me is how all the sounds are added in post to create the effect of slow motion sound. The more you listen, the more you'll start to hear the tiniest details.
